Riverside Theatres Digital and Play On presents Archie Roach’s Tell Me Why. The production will be available to watch online from 10am Friday 22 October until 10pm Sunday 7 November 2021, along with an exclusive online Watch Party on Sunday 24 October at 2pm.
Not many have lived as many lives – from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader – but it took almost a lifetime to find who he really was.
He is Archie Roach.
His new memoir Tell Me Why (Simon and Schuster) is an intimate, moving and often confronting account of his resilience and strength of spirit, and also of a great love story. It’s an extraordinary odyssey of love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal – and the healing power of music. The companion album Tell Me Why (Bloodlines), considered Roach’s 18 song ‘magnum opus’, re-imagines eleven songs which have defined his extraordinary career, together with two songs, previously written but never recorded, two songs of early-influence and three brand new recordings.
Archie Roach’s Tell Me Why Online Watch Party and Interactive Live Chat will also offer a behind-the-scenes insight into the making of the show, featuring a live conversation with iconic Indigenous Australian singer songwriter, Archie Roach.
From Friday 22 October at 10am to Sunday 7 November 2021 at 10pm inclusive, Archie Roach’s Tell Me Why will also be available to stream On Demand. During this period of time, viewers can watch as many times as they wish.
